Amar’e gon’ learn today!
Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire is owning up to a homophobic message he sent to a fan on Twitter this weekend and now wants to publicly apologize, telling TMZ, “I should have known better and there is no excuse.”
Amar’e adds, “I am a huge supporter of civil rights for all people. I am disappointed in myself for my statement to a fan.”
The NBA just announced … Amar’e has been fined $50,000 over the incident — for what the league called “offensive and derogatory language.”
Amar’e sent the message Saturday in response to a bitter fan, who criticized Amar’e for the Knicks’ poor finish last season. The fan wrote, “@Amareisreal you better come back a lot stronger and quicker to make up for this past season mannnnnn deadasss!!!”
Amar’e responded in a direct message, saying, “F**k you. I don’t have to do anything f*g.”
Amar’e apologized to the fan directly soon after, writing, “I apologize for what I said earlier. I just got off the plane and had time to think about it. Sorry bro!! No excuses. Won’t happen again.”
Amar’e has apologized to the fan and also has to pay a fine, do you think he has done enough to redeem himself?
